    The Campfire Cremation Of John Linn

    Episode 336 is dedicated to True Crime Historian patron Marlene Resch, who wanted to hear a historic case from her hometown of Eugene, Oregon. So I dug around a bit and found this cowboy story which turns out to have been the first execution in Lane County.

    Culled from the historic pages of the Eugene Guard, the Morning Register, and other newspapers of the era.
